Is only available at a handful of bars in Boston. This beer is brewed as a "thank you" for the early adopters to sell Sam Adams. High quality.

I had this one at Jacob Wirths. It was served in a SA pint which I always like to see. The beer is a rusty dark red with chill haze and a sticky beige head.

It has a nice aroma of lightly roasted malt.

It is malt forward with a hint of sweetness. There are grains, red apple and something a bit earthy. Hint of pear and a touch of hop bittering mid glass.

Mouth is medium with a touch of slickness.

Very similar to an Irish red and easy to pair with a good chowder.
